Study 5: Values Alignment Study (VAS)

A research study which examines how classroom teachers of mathematics respond to the many unavoidable instances when they find themselves and their students valuing different attributes of mathematics learning.

Educators and their respective students come to class with their own aspects
of valuing and these are likely to be different. If values alignment helps to maintain a functioning
classroom environment, then educators and students will want to see one another’s values aligned
and in harmony.
